Random 5 Friday- Snowed In!


Our area got record- breaking snow accumulation yesterday- at least 20 inches.


This means that we’ll be stuck in the house for a while, so creativity is going to be key. Here are five things we’ve done since being snowed in.

1. We made good use of DVDs. American Girl DVDs, Ponyo, and The Emperor’s New Groove have been hits.

2. We’ve done lots and lots of crafting- painting rocks, Chinese lanterns, Sharpie art, and clay creations.


3. Lots of learning has been happening through silly and gross facts books, solar system games, and Egyptian treasures kits.


4. Minecraft, as usual, is occupying much of the big kids’ time.


5. Lastly, my personal favorite, random silliness has been rampant.


What are your favorite homebound activities??

  1. We have had a ton of snow as well. In fact it is snowing right now. My boys are into minecraft too they play it often on their readers. I have to limit it though I like to see them playing on things other than electronics too. You know using their imagination. lol


  2. Wow, that is some serious snow! When the kids were little and we were snowed in they sometimes made forts out of blankets or sheets and draped it over chairs and furniture. We watched movies too, and danced to music and of course, there was building the snowman or snowfort. The hardest is when you’re snowed in with no electricity!!!! However, that is rare around here and my kids are grown now anyway! Thanks for linking up to Making Your Home Sing Monday!
